Kungsträdgården Cherry Blossoms—Stockholm, Sweden

Cherry trees line an open plaza in Stockholm's Kungsträdgården (King's Tree Garden), a park in the center of the city that dates back to the Middle Ages. Sixty-three Japanese cherry trees were planted in 1998—each spring, tourists and locals alike take advantage of their beauty by picnicking, strolling or sitting beneath the trees.

Expected peak bloom: Mid-April, 2016

Cherry Blossom Day: April 16, 2016 (Swedish)
